I heard they are hiring? Anybody know anything?
I hope you are correct, but if they don't fix their business model, they will die. I presonally have sworn off American made cars. I have been burned by all three of them and it will never happen again. I just had to spend 500 dollars getting a power window fixed on a 2004 F-150 that has 44,000 miles. What really made me angry was when the service writer told me it was a common failure. I told her, it was costing Ford a customer for life.GM isn't going anywhere. The flight department is a very necessary part of their business-those planes fly their asses off.
Why be ashamed of the benefits of aircraft usage?
While I know nothing of the operation - most public company aircraft are offices, they use them to have meetings (try that in coach, Mr Senator) they use them to sleep through the night to wake up and be productive for an Intl meeting/deal, and to assure that they will actually get there (Not get delayed at Heathrow) etc...etc...
No need to lease, no need to hide...These are not caviar barges - they are extensions of offices.
NOW - where those 3 faulted this week - they didn't have an explanation for the angry public. They should have been briefed on this. They could have thrown this right back at those morons. It was a childish attack from left field and it worked. Shame on the Big 3 for not being prepared.
Next time as a congressman how he got to the meeting that day? Not by train I bet.
The government should not be in the business of bailing out private companies. Not the airlines. Not the banks. And not the automakers. Its up to the companies to make the necessary changes to stay in business.
I remember when Chrysler got bailed out the first time. Since then its been merged, bought, sold, and still nobody wants to buy their cars. Its time to say sink or swim on your own dime.
We've become too comfortable with the concept that nobody should fail. Not in little league, not in school, and now apparently, not in business either.
What was that line from Red October? "Every now and then a little revolution is not a bad thing."
I think we're due for one in this country.
